7:10 am
clung to his 9/11 story using it to question the loyalty of american muslims during and after the terror attacks. >> i've had hundreds of phone calls to the trump organization saying we saw it. it was dancing in the streets. >> reporter: carly fiorina the object of some trump barbs says the campaign is revealing trump's deeper and more worrisome tendencies. >> donald trump only feels big when he is trying to make everyone else look small. >> reporter: trump has a meeting with pastors and doing so amid criticism and confusion. baltimore pastor and activist jamaal bryant questioned to a campaign promotional flyer. >> why do those who participate in black lives matter look at the black church as a joke? and maybe it's because of these 200 preachers who have in fact prostituted the authenticity of the prophetic mantle. >> reporter: three have backed out. others like mark burns who
7:11 am
support's trump's candidacy admit many african-americans still have questions. >> this meeting is on 911 cry he has to address some of these issues and not just do it pridely but he has to come out and address it publicly. >> reporter: numerous other pastors scheduled to be at the meeting have released statements making it clear their presence is not an endorsement. one pastor said trump must address issues of racism and black lives matters have encountered some hostility and episodes trump said little about during or after. also in washington "face the nation" moderator and cbs news political director john dickerson. good morning. >> good morning. >> taking note of major's report where does this leave donald trump? >> i think it leaves him where he has been which is saying outrageous things and some of them only loosely associated with reality, and not losing any of his core support, who really like him and still continue to.
7:12 am
>> you see the frustration with your interview with jeb bush. where do they go and what do they expect to do in the face of all this? >> yes. jeb bush is frustrated. and one of the problems for him and the others who have been attacking trump now for weeks and weeks it doesn't seem to be getting noir. part of it is also a bit of a mixed message. jeb bush was increditly critical of trump and said he would support trump over hillary clinton even though he said far more critical things of trump than he ever has of hillary clinton. the problem for all nontrump candidates there are too many of them and somebody has to emerge ago the trump alternative and that person might get the share of voters who are not attracted to trump. >> he was very strong on your follow-up on charlie's point he was strong on your program using scary and misinformed. do you think that is going to be an opportunity for him and other candidates to break through? what will it take? >> i think the opportunity for candidates to break through,
7:13 am
one, the number of alternatives has to get smaller. two, they have to make a governing case which is that after the attacks in paris where the commander in chief is a more central question to the campaign, where a crisis manager in the office is important, that the argument would be that donald trump is not ready for that kind of moment. that would be a way in which they can go to voters with a new kind of message, because the ones that the trump opponents have been using so far has not worked to shrink his support. >> will this narrowing only take place after iowa and new hampshire? >> i think that is quite possible. i mean, it's only until the other trump alternatives start to fall away that this narrowing can seem to happen. the challenge for trump is the one he has always had which he has a strong base that is relatively unshakeable but he also has that ceiling on his support and he can't build his coalition. but there has got to be another candidate who can go grab those voters that trump isn't able to get and that is still requiring that. >> john dickerson, thank you.

of what i've had. >> reporter: bryant has struggled big time this year but the lakers are in rebuild mode so his most important job maybe of that a mentor. at the end of his career making sure other players get the right start to theirs. >> he has an incredible career. one, he constantly developed new shots in his career. >> yes. >> secondly magic johnson once said the only player he knew after the game would go back to his hotel room and watch the game. >> he would. >> his love letter to basketball is nice. he said i will always be the kid with rolled up socks and garbage can in the corner and five seconds on the clock and ball in my hand. 5-4-3-2-1 shoot! he'll be missed. >> i think of that icy intensity he showed to you in that interview, right? >> thank you, jeff. coming up a cbs news investigation this morning. workers say they were blamed and ev
